Tuesday Night Dancing with Independence Squares
Our 2023-2024 weekly classes and workshops began on September 19 2023!
We dance on Tuesday evenings. We are currently offering the following classes and workshops:
- Mainstream class: If you’ve never square danced before, but want to give it a try, this is the class for you!
- Plus class
- Advanced (1 and 2) class
- Challenge 1 workshop
Our classes and workshops are in two rooms with our callers, Betsy Gotta and Mark Franks. If you are new to a program and you take the class, please come every Tuesday through December (at least). We understand that you may miss a class or two, but frequent absences cause the instruction to slow down which is not fair to the other students.
